The Melbourne Museum

The Melbourne Museum is located in Carlton Gardens at the northern top end of the city precinct.  It is set in the Carlton Gardens and adjacent to the 19th century Royal Exhibition building.

A visit to Melbourne Museum is a rich, surprising insight into life in Victoria. We show you Victoria's intriguing permanent collections and bring you brilliant temporary exhibitions from near and far. You'll see our natural environment, our cultures and our history through different perspectives.

When the VMSVC run event here the pursuit track is set up in the large open concourse between the two buildings and is easily accessible for both the participants and the public.

In 2016 the VMSVC event is scheduled to run on the 6th of September.  As the event draws near there will be more information available.

Travel to the venue is relatively easy with undercover parking for passenger vehicles available.  If you are using public transport then tram, train and bus services are all close by.
